Tabbed Product Details Display for PC v5.1.01
Earlier versions: v4.1, v4.5 sp1, v4.7
|ProductCart v5 now features a tabbed product page interface. Why does GreyBeard continue to offer this solution?
Since 2009, GreyBeard has provided this important and popular feature to the ProductCart community. In ProductCart v5, the authors introduced a tabbed product page feature which differs significantly in its approach versus ours. We believe that our feature set represents a superior solution.
Some products simply require more space to present all of the necessary details then the stock layout will accomodate. This script extends the Product Detail page functionality to allow descriptive data to appear in a series of horizontal tabs.
Tab titles may be configured at the site-wide level, and easily overridden at the category and product levels - a feature not available in the stock implementation.
Provides support for 9 extra checkbox / text / textarea fields which may be assigned for any required custom functionality.

The latest version of our tabbed product page add-on fully supports the responsive design strategy embraced by ProductCart v5.
One of the most frequent requirements for the projects that we perform is to add new fields to the product table (and the respective admin tools) for one reason or another.
That requirement is so common that we rarely build a site, or respond to a custom programming request, where we don't have to add such a field to the product database and admin tools.
To address this need, within the modifications to the product admin tools for our tabbed product page mod, we introduced 9 additional fields to the products table:
- 3 textarea fields, fully supported by the HTML editor
- 3 text input fields
- 3 checkbox on/off flags
These fields are supported by the product admin tools
, as well as the ProductCart's CSV/XLS spreadsheet import/export tools, making it easy as possible for store owners to manage these content fields.
Please note that we don't take those fields any farther in this mod, we just provide support for administering the data. What you do with these fields is up to you and your developer. We just save you the time and expense of adding the fields and updating all of the admin tools.
